Ask a librarian

Apr 17, 2013
First things first: Happy National Library Week to all the librarians and library users out there. You know who you are. You are all fabulous! As a librarian I am asked a variety of questions. — it comes with the job! Generally, they’re questions about specific books or or help on how to find information that people are looking for. Not often am I asked a question about being a librarian. I was talking to Nadia, Alex and Lia last week and they were asking me questions about being a librarian. They were questions that I never thought about answering. Questions varied from “What do you need to be a librarian?” to “How does someone become a library intern?” I realized that not everyone has a librarian to ask their questions to. It was Lia who suggested that I should write a blog post to answer questions from people who have them. (You’ve got to admit, that Lia is one smart cookie.) In the spirit of National Library Week, I want to answer your questions. Is there a question that you have always wanted to ask a librarian? Or even any question that you want to ask me? Now is your chance! Leave a question in the comments and I will answer them to the best of my ability in a post next week.
